One of the Angel Families in D.C. for a recent event told Rep. Chip Roy that they traveled to the capitol in hopes of persuading President Donald J. Trump not to sign the underwhelming budget bill that would authorize nearly no funds for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
On Twitter, Roy posted that the family flew to D.C. to meet with President Trump and dissuade him from signing any spending bill that would not provide necessary wall funding, but “weren’t given the chance.”
My friends – the Vargas family from San Antonio – who flew to DC w/ Angel families in hopes to see @realDonaldTrump but weren’t given the chance. They lost their son/nephew Jared to an illegal immigrant. They don’t support this bad bill. #JusticeForJared pic.twitter.com/rWSbcvPWM7

This comes on the heels of Big League Politics reporting that White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney blocked Angel Families from visiting with President Trump today.
The spending bill would require President Trump to clear wall construction in every locality along the border, and would limit the wall to simple steel bollard structures with no concrete wall whatsoever. Additionally, it would prohibit ICE from detaining any illegal immigrants found near an unaccompanied child.
“This bill is an embarrassment – it has little chance to build substantial physical barriers but it will empower cartels to harm migrant children,” said said Roy. “It should be vetoed.”
Roy also revealed that they lost their family member, Jared Vargas, to a horrific murder thought to be committed by an illegal immigrant. Vargas was allegedly murdered in his apartment and then had his body burnt by an illegal immigrant last summer.
My San Antonio reported at the time:
The family notified the authorities about their discovery and then staked out the apartment complex, waiting for any sign of Vargas. On Sunday, around 5 p.m., Chepey and a few other family members left the apartments to get food.
“We were gone for one hour,” she said, eyes moistening.
While they were gone, Esquivel-Garcia allegedly set fire to Vargas’s corpse.
When Chepey and the family returned to the apartments, they saw the firefighters and knew something had gone terribly wrong. They learned a body had been discovered, but it wasn’t until Wednesday, when Vargas was positively identified, that their worst fears had come true.
Vargas had been a college student studying cyber security before his brutal murder. His parents and family now consider themselves an “Angel Family,” a term popularized to describe the loved ones of those murdered by illegal immigrants.
It has been reported that President Trump may sign the spending bill, but is planning to declare a national emergency and use billions of dollars from other funding sources to build the wall without Congress’s approval.
According to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Trump is moments away from signing the troublesome Budget Bill, which grants a small fraction of his requested money for border security, and makes building a wall virtually impossible.
But instead of accepting defeat, he will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time he signs the bill.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
